Once upon a time in the projects yo 
I damn near had to wreck a hoe 
Yellin' through the screen do' (Hey let me in!) 
(Big Daddy got a fifth of gin and down to sin) 
Baby up in two ten is on a nigga 
Bendin' over pickin' up her mail she can tell I'm dyin' to get her 
I'm sittin' in yo' livin' room slash kitchen 
A nigga ain't tryin' to be the fuckin' groom so stop bitchin'
I like the way that ass is switchin', answer the do' 
Some nigga in a eighty-kay, yo' baby daddy 
Lookin' like he mad at me (what) wit'cho name on his neck 
Here we go with mo' drama in the projects 

Wait a minute, who is this motherfucker? 
You better take his ass in the back, and start talkin'
Nick that bud 'fore it bloom, and start stalkin 
I can hear you guys yellin' a little strugglin'
You'se a fool if you think that I'm jumpin' in 
That nigga jet, smokin' on a cigarette 
You say domestic shit, get you soakin' wet? 
Well come with it and get it, blow my socks 
While I'm drinkin' all the cool-Aid, watchin Jamie Foxx 
I'm hearin' mo' knocks 
(Oh, that's just my people 
They came all the way to the projects to meet you) Who? 
This fool wearin' black, his girl, in the see through 
Distraction, a little action, *fight ensues* I woke up 
Tied up like (What happened? Punk you shoulda stuck to rappin'
Niggas tell me you got a house full of platinum
Where the platinum at motherfucker? 
I hear that shit worth more than gold!) 

Wait a minute motherfucker, this my house! 
Once upon a time in the projects
Once upon a time in the projects
Once upon a time in the projects
Once upon a time, once upon a time 

I'm like baffled, they got me gaffled, with the duct tape 
So I remain raw, in come this chainsaw *knock knock knock* 
Another knock, it's the girl from two-ten 
Here to drop salt, that's when them bitches fought 
I thought, "I bet-ta plan my escape" 
In the midst of this commotion, Ice Cube is breakin' tape 
I'm free, bombin' on the first thing I see 
And guess who walk in, with a nine, and a grin 
It's the baby daddy he ain't playin', 
He started layin' everybody down, about face with a frown 
I'm runnin' to the bedroom, I lock the do' 
And grab the phone, the bitch phone ain't turned on 
I think I'm gone, that's when I hear a soft knock 
It's the girl from two-ten, with her number, and a glock 
Said, "Call me up, if it's for sex, or chin check 
Nigga get you a real ass bitch from the projects!" 

And I just might do that 
Once upon a time in the projects
Once upon a time in the projects
Once upon a time in the projects 
Once upon a time, once upon a time
